About Me

My name is Daniel. I am a passionate tech enthusiast who decided to switch careers and pursue a life-long passion for technology and computers. Within 6 months, I learned Express, React, Javascript, and NodeJS. I've built several applications and you can check out my work.

As a learner, I have always excelled. In Academia, I worked as a research assistant, aiding in half a dozen published research studies under the guidance of a PhD candidate. I even picked up a publicaton myself and graduated from the University of Houston with a BS in Psychology with Honors in Major and an award-winning Senior Honors Thesis.

I am currently seeking a full-time Software Development role, let's connect!
